Here’s the thing about the Super Bowl: I had to watch it at 10 am on a Monday morning. UGHHHHH AUSTRALIA. I was thanking God that I’m at school and not working otherwise I would have called in sick (warning to future employers: I will work on my birthday, but Super Bowl Monday is one of the best days of the year so we’re going to have to talk about that). And considering Monday morning is the most productive time of the week for me ad determines how the rest of the week is going to go… I think it’s safe to say that the rest of the week is going to be a bit… lax.
It was nearly impossible to put together this list. Do you have any idea how many articles have been written about the Super Bowl in the last week? Like… a million (that’s a serious estimation, not me being ridiculous). But these are the ones I really liked and remembered. Oh, and the reason there are 3 commercial articles here is because they don’t show the commercials in Australia – it’s just not the same experience.
How Michael Jackson Saved The Superbowl – Mike Ozanian, Forbes SportsMoney. A short and sweet piece about the halftime show and how the NFL turned it around to be great.
Seven Best Superbowl Commercials of 2013 – Josh Pacheco, The New Sports Guru. The title says it all – go check it out!
Super Bowl Commercials 2013: Worst Ads of the Night – Max Meyer, Bleacher Report. I can’t be biased. You need to see the worst, don’t you?
And if that wasn’t enough, here are the Top 10 Super Bowl Commercials of All Time – Toiya Crawford, Babes Dig Balls. You know you laughed at these and you still think about them from time to time. Funny how commercials do that to you…
Why I’m Never Watching The NFL Again After Super Bowl XLVII – Matt Saccaro, Thought Catalog. A sad, and yet surprisingly accurate, commentary on the commercialization of football. Kinda makes you yearn for the goo old days and wonder if the AFL is headed in this direction.
A Chat With God, As He Decides Who’s Winning The Super Bowl – Brian Donovan, Thought Catalog. I guess this blog couldn’t just be a sad Sally about the game. This one is funny 🙂
The NFL Dropped the Ball With Super Social Media – Lou Imbriano. Honestly, I hadn’t noticed the lack of social media by the NFL surrounding the Super Bowl, probably because I’m in Australia and things just don’t get here… but this is spot on. The NFL should have done better.
And of course… Funniest Superbowl Power Outage Tweet – James Hibberd, Inside TV. I wait on bated breath to see who is getting fired over this. It HAS to be someone, don’t you think?
Were there some that you really liked and I left out?
(PS – How good was that Destiny’s Child reunion?! My heart felt like it might burst.)
